A HUDDERSFIELD museum plans to install CCTV cameras after a spate of crime and vandalism.
The move to put eight cameras in place at Tolson Museum, Moldgreen, comes after a run of incidents at the Ravensknowle Park site.
Incidents include the theft of lead, vandalism and anti-social behaviour.
The plans to improve security will see three cameras being fitted at the back of the stable buildings and one at the front, facing the front of the museum.
Four other cameras will be placed around the listed museum building, to face different angles around the park.
Kirklees Council hopes the cameras will help to stop recent problems in the park off Wakefield Road.
A spokesman said: “The reasons behind the cameras plan result from a spate of lead thefts from the building and problems with vandalism and anti-social behaviour.
“The cameras will cover the museum and adjacent areas of Ravensknowle Park to help deter his sort of behaviour.”
The proposals are being considered by Kirklees planners.
A decision is expected later this month.
